What's New in Version 6.7
With ForeFlight Mobile 6.7 we are excited to announce ForeFlight Connect and wireless connectivity between ForeFlight Mobile and the Dynon Avionics SkyView system. The integration with Dynon Avionics enables Wi-Fi connectivity between your iPad, iPhone and the SkyView glass panel system. ForeFlight Mobile can send and receive flight plans when connected to SkyView, receive SkyView GPS and AHRS data to feed Synthetic Vision and the moving map display, record flight data, and upload flight data to the cloud.
We also re-invented the ScratchPads feature, adding much more capability. Multiple pages are now supported, they are tied into the ForeFlight sync system, backed up to the cloud, and accessible from any other iPads you use. Six templates are provided, including templates for PIREPs, ATIS, and clearances. Swipe between pages with a simple three-finger gesture. The enhancements make note taking in flight better than ever!
In the Maps view we added a global Winds Aloft layer that shows wind barbs on the map for altitudes from 3,000' to 54,000'. The new altitude slider lets you easily see how the winds change across the world and across the flight levels.

Look No Further
Summary: Foreflight offers the best iPad EFB on the market. Very competitive pricing considering they are innovating much faster than any of their competitors. The pro version is a desirable upgrade for the weight and balance alone, and the geo-referenced charts are an added plus.
Going forward: I would recommend that the development team look into the possibility of adding Jepp charts to this app.
This is a great app but is this a bug?
We have used Foreflight for a long time. We get our weather enroute through XM Weather transmitted through a Barron Mobile Link. After the last update, our weather is constantly dropping offline.
Best avionics you could buy!
Foreflight is an excellent tool for any type of pilot. Customer service is outstanding. Highly recommended by me.
